Where can the district get additional copies of Effective Board Practices: An Inventory for School Boards (Inventory)? Is the board required to go through the Inventory and to do all the things listed on it? How is the Inventory different from other board self-assessment instruments the board has used in the past? If the board fills out the Inventory document, is the completed document a public record, subject to release under Texas law? What about the individual copies that board members fill out in advance of a meeting to discuss the Inventory?
